Stop confiscating vehicles over minor traffic violations – A-G blasts police

Source The Ghana Report

The Attorney-General’s Office has directed the Ghana Police Service to cease the practice of seizing vehicles for minor traffic violations.

This is due to a surge in public complaints and legal concerns over the police’s practice of confiscating vehicles under the Road Traffic Regulations 2012 (L.I. 2180).

In a letter, Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame emphasized that the current road traffic regulations do not support such drastic measures for minor infractions.

He deemed the seizure of vehicles excessive, especially when fines or imprisonment are outlined as penalties for these offences.

The Attorney-General recommended that police officers refrain from impounding vehicles for minor violations, such as running a red light or driving without valid insurance, unless absolutely necessary for legal proceedings.
